One drive bay displays as empty - WHAT?

Hi Guys, today all of a sudden on of my drive bays showed up as being empty on my drop 5n. I didn’t do anything at all, no shutdowns or firmware or other software installations.

Now my drobo 5n states, that it is rearranging the data to avoid date loss.

Why is the drobo 5n not realizing that there is a drive installed in bay 2? If the drive where damaged, the drobo 5n should state that with a red indicator light, right?

What is the deal here?



Sounds like either a drive failure or a failure of the back-plane that it plugs into. When data protection stops, try replacing the affected drive with another.

Hi AzDragonLord

Yes, you where right, Drive was done!

Thanks for your help!!!
